Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Has anyone heard anything about a FF/X-Men crossover or is it just a shared universe ?

Millar clarified that there were no specific crossover plans. Any nods to the shared universe would probably be subtle, just passing references or background details.

Simon Kinberg to Rewrite Fantastic Four

So a script still hasn't been completed yet. Damn, they better get on that before rights revert...

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

@Dream...drafts have been done...Kinberg is doing an overhaul on what has been done before. So that would indicate Fox hasn't been happy with the previous drafts.

Yeah...I'm starting to become concerned about this project. Simon Kinberg would mark the sixth writer attached to the project (including Josh Trank himself who wrote the first draft). This is starting to get into GL territory. As the article states, they were supposed to enter production last month...a couple weeks ago I think...but now...it seems like they've becoming desperate.

If this attempt botches...I wonder what they would do. They were pretty keen on not letting the rights revert, that is why they brought in Trank to direct.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I wonder how much longer this thing will go on. Will we not hear any Fantastic Four news from FOX for several months, then Marvel just happens to announce in an offhand remark that they got back the Fantastic Four film rights two years from now?

Or will FOX just barely make it and get the movie made and released on time? This behind the scenes production news is becoming more interesting than the movie itself!

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

The thing with "Daredevil" happened because there was a deadline in place that Fox didn't meet. I do not believe that is the case with FF. They can push back the release date if they get the script to where they and Trank want it.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I'm assuming all the Marvel character film rights have expiration dates when they revert if a studio doesn't make a movie in time.

Why would the Fantastic Four be exempt from this? It is not much of a deal for Marvel if they sold off the film rights to one of their characters or teams to a studio forever.

As long as we get a good Fantastic Four movie, I don't care if it was made by FOX or Marvel Studios.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I never said the FF film rights were exempt from that rule...I said I wasn't aware of a deadline being in place similar to the one Fox didn't meet with "Daredevil".

What do you mean by "deadline similar"? Do you agree there's a deadline where a movie has to be made by or do you think the rights were given permanently?

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I would think that the time limit on these Fox licenses are the same for each property. Daredevil was released in 2003, and the rights reverted in 2013. The most recent Fantastic Four movie was 2007, so I would think that Fox has until 2017 to get something done. Just my speculation; and 10 years is a nice round number you would expect in a contract.

^ I doubt it's as simple as that. Blade, Punisher, and Ghost Rider also reverted back to Marvel within the last year or so, and the last movies in those franchises were in 2004, 2008, and 2011, respectively.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

I mean that "Daredevil" had a deadline set as was reported that Fox had to meet before the rights reverted back to Marvel Studios. Remember the so-called trade talks? All that nonsense? Joe Carnahan's last ditch effort to pitch a film. All of that was before the deadline (which I believe was October last year). I'm saying that I don't believe that "Fantastic Four" has such a deadline imposed right now. Or at least if there is one...no one has reported one like with "Daredevil".

Yea, I would imagine it has one, it's just not close enough to being missed for it to be bandied about. (IE: No reason to mention it, if things are on target for getting a movie out before it hits, or if it's more than 3 years away)

They likely all have it written into their contract that "If X number of years go by without a movie being made, Rights revert back"

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Also worth considering: in 1994, the Roger Corman F4 movie was made to keep the rights from reverting back to Marvel. After that, 11 years passed before the next F4 movie, and the rights remained with Fox for all that time.

While I'm sure there's a deadline, I don't think the timespan is the same for all Marvel properties at Fox and other studios, and I think it might depend on whether a new movie is in active development.
